Lawsuits among Believers

1 Does any of you who has a complaint against someone dare go to law before the unrighteous,a and not before the saints?

References for 1 Corinthians 6:1

    • a 6:1 - Unbelievers; see v. 6
      2 Or do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world is judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest cases?
      3 Do you not know that we will judge angels-not to speak of things pertaining to this life?
      4 So if you have cases pertaining to this life, do you select thoseb who have no standing in the church to judge?

      References for 1 Corinthians 6:4

        • b 6:4 - Or life, appoint those (as a command)
          5 I say this to your shame! Can it be that there is not one wise person among you who will be able to arbitrate between his brothers?
          6 Instead, brother goes to law against brother, and that before unbelievers!
          7 Therefore, it is already a total defeat for you that you have lawsuits against one another. Why not rather put up with injustice? Why not rather be cheated?
          8 Instead, you act unjustly and cheat-and this to brothers!
          9 Do you not know that the unjust will not inherit God's kingdom? Do not be deceived: no sexually immoral people, idolaters, adulterers, male prostitutes, homosexuals,
          10 thieves, greedy people, drunkards, revilers, or swindlers will inherit God's kingdom.
          11 Some of you were like this; but you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
